Tomorrow's election day, and you have 351 issues to decide
Primaries in an off-year are often intimate affairs
by WKSU's M.L. SCHULTZE

Tomorrow’s election lacks both the intensity and the numbers  of a presidential year. But it doesn’t lack for issues. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more.

It’s a primary election day in an off year. History says that means a low turnout, and local elections board officials are expecting only about one in five registered voters will be casting ballots.   In fact, voters in 14 Ohio counties have no reason to go to the polls at all: No issues, no candidates.

But those in the other 74 counties will be deciding 351 issues, including nearly 140 schools levies and bond issues. Not on the ballot will be a Medina City Schools levy. The school board voted last month to pull that off the ballot after controversy erupted over hundreds of thousands of dollars in education and other perks paid to the superintendent.

Voters in some cities are also deciding partisan primary battles for offices such as treasurer and city council. Canton is among them, and voters there will be selecting a new Democratic candidate for treasurer for the first time since 1994. With no Republicans on the ballot, the primary winner is likely to take over the office.

Polls open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.
